Pirate Pass-Off: A Very Simple Game
« on: October 03, 2008, 07:32:10 pm »
(I forget from whence I lifted this idea.)

Very simple: Print out a few of these cards. Then get rid of them.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/17456465/Pirate-Pass-Off-for-Avery-Business-Cards


this game works best at conventions, concerts, club meetings, college campuses,
or anywhere people are gathered.

The fun thing about it is that the card will go through cliques very quickly - and then the players will have to find someone else who hasn't been fooled yet.

If you want, have people write their names on the back of the card when they get it, so you can keep a log of where it went.

You might also include "Please return to <your name here> at the end of the day".

I DEMAND A BIG, GAY COWBOY CARD.

THE OBJECT IS TO KEEP THE CARD, AND PUNCH ANYONE WHO GIVES YOU A PIRATE OR NINJA CARD.

NOT GAY ENOUGH
The Jerk On Bike rolled his eyes and tossed the waffle back over his shoulder--before it struck the ground, a stout, disconcertingly monkey-like dog sprang into the air and snatched it, and began to masticate it--literally--for the sound it made was like a homonculus squatting on the floor muttering "masticate masticate masticate".

I remember some version of this at a con I went to.

Except there, they used a creepy 400 lb guy in a cat suit instead of cards.

OH MY GOD, THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST GAMES EVER.
What program did you make these in? I will have to translate these into German, but absolutely have to do this game, SOON.

Also, is there any reason not to add "pirate/ninja quotes" that are memebombs? This game has the right qualities to give a good memebomb a piggyback ride.
Unless stated otherwise, feel free to copy or reproduce any text I post anywhere and any way you like. I will never throw a hissy-fit over it, promise.

This needs to happen. 

It doesn't even need to be themed memes, IMO.

I agree. Just put a memebomb in quotes, attribute it to Captain Somethingorother, and slap it on there. For extra effect, use a small set of related memebombs for your set of cards.
